Sewage Summit

Caring for the Cotswolds LogoOn 8 July 2024 we brought together environmental activists, water companies and other agencies to delve into the underlying causes of sewage pollution affecting our district and to explore effective and practical measures to stop it.

The Sewage Summit took place at the Corinium Museum, Cirencester, on Monday 8 July 2024, 9:15am to 3:30pm.

This event gave residents an opportunity to hear from the water companies serving the district, local environmental groups and regulatory bodies and have a chance to ask them questions.
